Noon – 1 PM:  Registration
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Session One:  Institute Welcome & Financial Literacy
Presenters:  Panel of Financial Advisors

Money. Money. Money.   Do you have way too much of it and don’t know where to invest it?  Most likely, as a new professional (or soon to be one), you struggle with understanding how a 401K works, what kinds of financial questions are appropriate in an interview and struggle to find a debt free future. 

The NPI kicks off with a challenging topic because money, investing, debt, credit and salary negotiation, are rarely taught, and therefore, rarely learned early enough where it can be helpful in changing the course of your financial future.

Preceding the panel will be a brief welcome, distribution of materials and a review of new professional competencies – including financial literacy.  NPI attendees will be asked to turn in a resume and complete a brief competency assessment PRIOR to the conference.

Description of the panelist will go here, so check in again for more details.

 

5:00 PM - 8:00 PM:   Lead365 Conference Opening Session and Programs

Throughout the entire conference sessions specific to new professionals will be identified by NP and are open to all conference participants.  When indicated by NPI ONLY, these programs are for institute participants only.

Session Two:  Ten True Workplace Success Strategies

You did not just say that!  Or did you?  Ever wonder what most bosses wish their young professionals understood from their first day on the job?  Employers who supervise, hire and fire college graduates and professionals will share the Do’s and Don’ts of being a new professional. 

From the significance of picking up the phone to doing what it takes to advance (if you want to advance), this honest disclosure by those in the know, will give you much to consider.
